Stand and Be Counted make campaign theatre with a proud record for welcoming new audiences to the theatre. Our work is adventurous and political, merging lived experience with new ideas. We believe deeply in the importance of theatre as a tool to promote social change and unity and hold the powerful to account.

The Herd bring children, young people and families together in playful spaces to watch and share stories. Our work explores what it’s like to be young, the good bits and the hard bits. We believe that children and young people deserve art that respects their rich, complex lives, and that by reflecting how children and young people see the world, we allow adults to view their own worlds differently.
